Remote Encounters: Connecting bodies, collapsing spaces and temporal ubiquity in networked performance, a two-day international conference with performance evening, aims to explore the use of networks as a means to enhance or create a wide variety of performance arts. How do networks as a site for performance provide opportunities for us as artists and performers? In particular how can we remotely collaborate, merge geographically separate places and times, reconfigure the space of performance and the relationship between artist and audience?
With proposals still coming in for the conference we have now extended the deadline until 4pm, the 30th of September. We have received some particularly strong proposals for both papers and performances however decisions on the final programme won’t be made until after September 30th. If you missed the deadline, were on holidays etc. and are interested in submitting a proposal now is your chance.
We are particularly keen to receive more paper proposals as we feel not all of the breadth and diversity that is networked performance is currently addressed in the proposals we have received. Papers that explore unusual interpretations of networked performance, emerging experimental practice, comparitive analysis of practice, an historical overview etc. are encouraged.
